on him and making us talk about that instead of talking about how much momentum that romney had out of that last debate and how little obama did for himself. it still rides on the presidential candidates on the top of the ticket to really set the narrative at that next debate on tuesday. but i think this impression that biden accomplished an important goal for the democrats is sinking in. >> yeah. until we get to tuesday we're still talk about this, david. there have been several articles written about joe biden's smiling during parts of the debate. so what are the conventional wisdom? did any of that take aby from the impact of his performance? >> i think it did a bit. if you talk to republicans in the aftermath of the debate that's what they wanted to talk about. joe biden unhinged, unserious, sort of laughing through serious questions about foreign policy. and frankly, they thought he was rude. but look, the romney campaign is trying to season this a little bit. i know they are up with a radio ad in ohio sort of seizing on his laughter during some of the foreign policy questions

politicized, and certainly the romney team rightly is talking about this. it's amazing tht front and center. >> to that same end, if what republicans are saying is true that the obama officials were trickling out the bad news then respect they politicizing the story as well? >> this is a ridiculous story. i like michael steele a great deal. i think he's actually sort of a democrat. >> please. >> but the truth is out -- on social issues. the truth is this is equivalent to spreading the rumor that george bush knew about 9/11 before it happened. it's a ridiculous story. the republicans are going after the president of being unpatriotic. this president needs support on the ber national and national tragedy. and this is a disgrace for the republican party to do this. >> don't you think there is merit into saying had the white house been forthcoming, or do you believe honestly what the white house put out there is honestly what they knew. >> that is what they need. >> the white house and the state department. >> i've been briefed by very senior officials on this matter. they know i go on talk sho

leading talking point for mitt romney and paul ryan. >> i don't think they're politicizing it. i'm not saying that because folks expect me to say that. i think will are questions about the time clock here, the unfolding of events. i appreciate the view that yes, it's been brief, but why? the first assassination of an ambassador -- u.s. ambassador, in close to 40 years. going unscathed. and to have all this bubble at this moment, i think the congress needs to get up to speed. the white house needs to be more forthcoming. the white house has created this store by the way they handled it coming out it have box. i give you the too many capsule and when the government spoke on it. but the reality is what they said initially and the facts have not lined up. they need to make it less of a story. to make it less politicized, and certainly the romney team rightly is talking about this. it's amazing tht front and center. >> to that same end, if what republicans are saying is true that the obama officials were trickling out the bad news then respect they politicizing the story as well? >> this is

before the election. most people are watching, and it takes away a key talking point for governor romney. he was saying for 43 months straight, unemployment was above 8%. it's no longer something me can say. >> okay. ed, with respect to the conspiracy theories, despite jared doesn't want to give it more oxygen, just a little bit more here. mitt romney is not latched on to their rhetoric. could all of this talk damage him, though, in the long run? in some ways it's highlighting the fact it's below 8%. this number, 7.8. >> it certainly robs him of the ability to say in a campaign speech as he has since he launched his campaign, that the unemployment rate is above 8%. but as he said yesterday, most americans would agree with him on, you know, we can do better. the number still isn't good. i think everyone would agree looking at the numbers that came out yesterday that, you know, 100,000-plus is fine, but really want to create 200,000-plus. you want to see employment growth everywhere. you don't want to see hundreds of thousands of people leaving the workforce. on that, there is gener

of the attack lines that he wants to do against romney, in this kind of forum when he's talking directly to voters who are going to be asking the questions in the audience. >> i'm curious, amie, the way that mitt romney, when you have on that split screen and he was always looking at the president. i mean he was looking at him the whole time, the president looking down. the town hall style meeting has to be different. do you think he'll take that as if he's attacking, studying the president or is it more of reaching out to the audience of people and connecting with the voters? >> i think it's more about the what you just said, alex, the latter. i think president obama, i'll disagree with david a little bit on this one. i think president obama, he has his likability going for him. he connects with a crowd. he moves around a little better than governor romney does. i think it's going to be a good night for him on tuesday night. >> okay. always a good morning to both of you. amie, david, thank you so much. >> thanks. >> later on the path to 270 electoral votes. we're going to look

campaign doesn't want to really touch this. >> the fact that he has to talking about mitt romney has to drop his line about the 8 plus percent from his campaign speeches, how much does that hurt him? >> as i said, he's been saying 8%. the president has been promising 8%. he hasn't delivered. that's one of the main attacks governor romney has been using, he's been bringing up that number repeatedly on the campaign trail. yesterday what you saw was the governor sort of switched and talking about 11% number which is the number if everybody was still looking -- the amount of people still looking for jobs from 2008 were looking now it would would be 11. he's going to say we haven't done enough. president obama acknowledged that in his remarks saying what we've been doing month after month, we're making headway, adding jobs each month but we haven't done enough. >> susan, back to wednesday night here. there's a new report on the president's assessment of his own doe bait performance. here's what glen thrush writes in politico "at first obama didn't think his performance was a complete disaste

, mitt romney is not latched onto all threat rick. but could all this talk, this talk, could it damage him in the long run? i mean, in some ways all it does is just highlight the fact we're talking below 8%. >> absolutely, alex. i think that the romney campaign didn't respond to that because they don't want to be anywhere near it. even some conservatives quickly denounced those remarks, that tweet by jack welch. and i think that frankly for the obama administration those people who believe jack welch are not going to vote for president obama, anyway. and i think actually it's probably going to go away fairly quickly just because the romney campaign doesn't want to really touch this. >> the fact that he has to talking about mitt romney has to drop his line about the 8 plus percent from his campaign speeches, how much does that hurt him? >> as i said, he's been saying 8%. the president has been promising 8%. he hasn't delivered. that's one of the main attacks governor romney has been using, he's been bringing up that number repeatedly on the campaign trail. yesterday what you saw
